This programme is delivered jointly between the Universities of Sheffield and Southampton, and focuses on developing future international leaders in energy storage technologies and their application, typically in transport and electric grid scenarios. A range of taught material covers an introduction to energy systems and issues, energy storage technologies (covering electrochemical, thermal, mechanical and superconducting magnetic energy storage types), their applications (including control, integration and interfacing), relevant laboratory skills (eg voltammetry and impedance spectroscopy) and socio-economic concerns and trading. The training programme, and appropriate use of research facilities, will be delivered at both Sheffield and Southampton campuses and students will have reciprocal access to facilities (including computing and library resources) at both institutions.
Year one is comparable to a taught masters course. Years two to four involve full-time research on your PhD research topic.
